that is forcing these insurance companies to make these decisions. kathleen sebelius will finally testify on the hill. >> well, we can just take the white house at its word. >> thank you. >> i'm using that tone, because clearly what they said is not true. and no one is coming out, where is president obama? let's hear it. let's have the explanation. were you misled. were you mistaken? what, instead we have carney not to believe our lying eyes and lying ears. instead, the white house predicted this back in 2010. they said more than 10 million would lose their plan because so many plans didn't meet the federal guidelines of obama care. but during the time, the president promised repeatedly the plans would be grandfathered. you heard ed say it. he said if you have a plan right now and obama care passes you will have a grandfathered plan. you will be able to keep your package. that is not true. well, grandfathering didn't work out at all because members of his administration saw to it. now some members of congress today put tough questions to one of the top obama care administrators on this wh

leading the coverage. good to see you. martha has more on this. martha: we saw kathleen sebelius the other day. nobody seems to be answering the question how many people successfully signed up for obamacare. we're getting new numbers how many people are getting notices they're petting boot from the policies they have now. look at some of these. in california it is up to 900,000 people who have lost their insurance. in georgia, 400,000. oregon, 150,000 have received those letters in the mail that are very disturbing. look at the map. from coast to coast all told numbers add up to 2 million americans now out of luck. they no longer have their current policy despite the promise, you know what, if you like your plan, like your doctor, none of that is going to change. the reality is turning out to be quite different. stuart varney joins me, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, really there is a ripple effect of this in the economy already, right? >> in my opinion obamacare is far worse for the economy than the shutdown. the economy is already slowing down, president o
this afternoon when three house republicans slammed health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius for blaming problems with the rollout on the government shutdown. but the latest issue with the website wasn't political at all. it was another big technical problem over the weekend that only got fixed today. is it working or not? 27 days after it was supposed to be open for business, the healthcare.gov website crashed again over the weekend. it was up and running again on monday. the administration blames this latest problem on one of the 56 contractors for the project, a subsidiary of verizon called terremark which was responsible for website capacity issues. >> the healthcare.gov technical team continued troubleshooting the issue with the online creation account process. >> reporter: meanwhile, the administration had other pressing problems. a triple threat on capitol hill. republican chairman darrell issa and his house reform and oversight committee wanted a slew of documents related to obama care and the rollout by 5:00 p.m. today. that deadline came and went, but issa has more
